Calm Down: It’s Safe To Take A Solo Trip To Hawaii

Mahalo travelers!

Hawaii is open for business and beautiful as always. No matter what you’ve read, it’s ok to visit a slice of the Big Pineapple, a tropical paradise that’s a world apart with Polynesian traditions. A constant stream of posts on social media now depicts Hawaii as relentless fire and brimstone destruction. While this makes for great sensational news, it lacks scientific context. These images reveal a teeny weeny 1 percentage of the Big Island near the summit of Kilauea!

The distorted coverage and images frightened visitors. Sadly, this actually spreads financial hardship across the entire state in tourism revenue as reservations cancel.

The stunning pictures of lava flowing through Hawaiian neighborhoods and destroying homes have convinced many travelers that they need to stay away from this region of the world. Unfortunately, clickbait headlines have only reinforced this idea. However, the reality of the situation is different.
It is still safe to take a solo trip to Hawaii.

Here’s what’s really happening.

The Majority of the Island Is Unaffected

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been closed, but the majority of the island is unaffected. If you’re thinking about a solo trip to Hawaii, you will be happy to hear that airports, beaches, restaurants, and the majority of tourist activities are still open and functioning as usual. Keep in mind that the media sells papers and gets web traffic by sharing exciting stories. As a result, they are talking all about acid rain and lava bombs, but in reality, those elements are really only affecting a small area on the slopes of the Kilauea Volcano.

When you’re planning a solo getaway, you have a lot of different solo travel companies. You can go on your own, follow your friends, take an organized tour, or travel with a travel tour company. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we think you should join a travel tour company for your next trip, and in particular, we think you should choose us. Here’s what sets us apart from the competition.

Boutique Services Focused on You

When you work with solo travel companies, you can often tell what their motives are from how they’re set up. Sadly, a lot of solo travel companies are all about the profits. They over-pack their trips, offer subpar experiences, and spend a lot of time and money talking about why they’re the best. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we’re different. Although we’re a business, we’ve never even considered just focusing on profits. We travel because we love it, and we specialize in boutique services with small groups and 12 to 18 hand-selected quality locations every year.

Embark On One of Our Solo Travel Packages

For weeks, I researched one our most exciting solo travel packages. I’m excited to share what I’ve experience with you. Even though this package is not available I wanted to showcase the time it takes to put together one of these packages. Enjoy!

Anchored 300 miles off Africa lies the world’s fourth-largest island.

It is called “Island of a thousand faces” for its astounding biodiversity with rainforests to barren steppes. Half of the land, protected by national parks, is home to 5% of the world’s plant and animal species 80%, which are unique only to Madagascar! On one of our more memorable solo travel packages, you will see the emblematic lemurs found nowhere else on the planet. You will also find my favorite tree, the baobab, which looks as if planted upside down with tangles roots high in the air.

I landed to no runway lights to an antiquated airport. Waiting an hour in line for my free visa, I a spotted a pile of moldy luggage that will never see its owners. The bank ran out of money to change my dollars. Begging orphans surrounded me.

I thought, half my clients would hate this, the other half would revel in the Third World challenges ahead.

I met my team of 7 global tour operators, the grateful “chosen ones” selected for this familiarization trip. I’m the only American. They’ve measured me up to be a diva evident by my bulging bags. I want to shout, “Its shoes people! And enough tangled IT cords to reach a Starbucks in Cape Town.” We’re all Mada-virgins anxious to squeeze the countries sites into 10 days.

I knew right away it would be one of thse historic solo travel packages for those brave enough to accept the challenge.

If you’re looking for a solo getaway you will never forget look no further than Adventures for Solo Travelers. We take travelers right here in our backyard to exciting, un-touristy locations they might not be able to travel to on their own. Hankering to see something new?

Traveling can be expensive, and to protect yourself financially, you may want to invest in travel insurance. This type of coverage kicks in if the trip gets canceled, but it also helps to protect you from potential mishaps on the road. Whether you’re going on a solo trip or a group adventure, here’s why you should definitely get travel insurance and a few tips to help you find the best policy for your needs.

Trip Cancellations

The value of travel insurance starts before you take off on your solo adventure. These policies often cover issues such as flights canceled due to storms, cruises canceled due to domestic disturbances, or similar problems. They often offer coverage that goes above and beyond what is offered by the company from which you purchased the tickets.

Additionally, top-notch travel insurance policies also offer coverage if you cancel for any reason. For instance, with an any-type-of-cancellation policy, you could potentially get a refund on your travel expenses if you have to cancel the trip because your babysitter got ill, a family member needs help, or for similarly personal reasons.

There’s a gazillion tour companies floating around the internet  – but how do you know which ones offer legitimate exotic vacation packages?

When planning a vacation, most travelers want the lowest price possible to escape. In order to go on a shoe string budget, naïve travelers search straight to “” and gravitate to whatever option is the “best deal.” Settling for the least expensive exotic vacation packages can eventually end up being waste of time and money on a place that will underwhelm you. Do you want to be bored to death eating at a fast food restaurant in Cancun, or do you want to experience something new, fresh, and exhilarating?

Adventures for Solo Travelers provides more than a vacation. We give you an unforgettable experience to be shared for years to come.

Let’s say a friend encourages you to visit Nepal. You want to do your own research. You Google local tour operators for Nepal. You pick “Yak on a Budget Travel”, because they are dirt cheap and you send them a PayPal deposit. Five months later, no one greets you at the airport upon arrival. Outside, Kathmandu assaults your senses, but you manage to hail a taxi to your 2-star hotel bordering on a youth hostel.  No breakfast, bad bed. Your guides are subpar. You get half-day tours daily instead of full days as promised in vans with no AC. At each famous site, the guide says, “Need money now for entrance fees.”  And the whole vacation continues to be miserable and frustrating for 8 long days of disappointment. Meanwhile, you watch other tour groups gleefully exiting deluxe motor coaches and head to the front of the lines for the best vantage points.

A gentle reminder dear travel lover – Do your research on exotic vacation packages credentials first!

Choose exotic vacation packages with a proven track record of reliability.

What makes Dubai the perfect solo travel destination? It can be a perfect juxtaposition of ultramodern with the ancient – rare, new, and exciting.

We came to planet Dubai to be astonished and this 21st century wonder did deliver. Since my visit last year, it has exploded with even more growth. Dubai seeks to become the world’s unique, premier solo travel destination. With favorable tax rates, it is now home to worldwide mega corporations. Credit is due to the ruling sheik with his entrepreneurial vision and super tolerance. He’s the opposite of xenophobic.

The 7 emirates are sandwiched between Iran, Qatar, Oman and Saudi. Each tiny kingdom is ruled by an emir or sheik. Once upon a time, Dubai was a sleepy village for pearl diving and camel trading. Today it expands at an astounding rate with 800 miles of new shoreline added from the manmade islands. The hundreds of new islands in The Palm and The World are visible from space. This land of sun, sand, sea, snow and sex is a pocket of freedom in Arabia with such titles as; “Las Vegas of the Middle East”, “St. Tropez of the Gulf” and “Monaco of the Desert.”

The dichotomy is found in its Islamic culture within an environment of western affluence forming a total fusion of East meets West.

When many people think of group travel tours, they think of a stuffy experience and being drug from event to event based on someone else’s itinerary, but that’s not the case anymore. Group tours have changed, and even for the adventurous traveler who likes to get off the beaten path, group tours can offer a lot of benefits. Here are just a few of the reasons these tours are a more fun way to see the world.

If you’re dreaming about exotic vacations for 2018, you may be wondering where to go. At Adventures for Solo Travelers, we have several upcoming trips, and we would love it if you joined us for one of our next adventures. Here’s a look at four of our upcoming favorites for 2018.

Are You Looking For Something More Than The Average Solo Groups?

Never underestimate the mysterious beauty of India. Everyone knows of the wonders of Delhi and the strange, romantic Taj Mahal. In truth, they are “must see’s—destinations you see on a postcard, or browsing a ‘top ten places to go in india’ list. But after you witness India’s greatest hits the question remains—where do you go from there? It’s almost hard to imagine the amazing experiences that await in any direction. I like to say India a bombardment of sights, sounds, taste, and smell. It is a place that can all at once overwhelm your senses and also a place that can bring you peace.
